Metazet FormFlex launches Second Skin: a sustainable protective layer for a hygienic cultivation system

Metazet FormFlex has launched a revolutionary new product called Second Skin, a purpose-designed plastic protective layer that completely protects the cultivation gutter, reducing the adherence of algae and fertiliser to a minimum and simplifying gutter cleaning.

Second Skin has gone through an extensive period of trialling and is now ready for the market.

Not only is it impact-resistant and UV-resistant, its incredibly smooth finish minimises the build-up of algae, mould and viruses, and makes cleaning easier.

Hygiene and sustainability

Productivity and hygiene are important aspects of a cultivation system. Cleaning protocols have become considerably more rigorous in recent years.

The sustainable plastic top layer of Second Skin provides cultivation gutters with complete protection. The material is UV-resistant and impact-resistant. The smooth finish gives algae,

fungi and viruses little to hold on to. Folds cannot form in the hard, preformed top layer, so good drainage is always guaranteed.

Less work

Second Skin signals an end the annual process of covering with film and subsequent removal, so it means less waste and labour-intensive work. The material of the top layer is resistant to high-pressure cleaners and treatment with all types of cleaning agents, and will give many years of service.

On-site installation

The Second Skin is custom-made on site with our profiling machines. It can be effortlessly connected to any cultivation system, so existing cultivation systems can be upgraded with this innovative product.
